CocoBase® Enterprise O/R Takes Developers From Complex Object Model Or Database Schema To Working Application in Minutes From THOUGHT Inc.®




February 12, 2003 - San Francisco, CA.

THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company, announces the new release of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R version 4.5 Service Release 1, enabling developers to go from a complex object model and/or database schema to working application in minutes. For developers initially getting started with CocoBase® on a project, the reduced learning curve and time to get an application up and running is substantial. This is another example of the "Quick and Easy" nature of CocoBase® that cuts the cost of database access development by up to 85%.

Additions to CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Version 4.5, Service Release 1 include the following;

1) WebSphere® Application Server, Version 5 now integrated for BMP & CMP Entity Beans, Session Beans, and Distributed Dynamic Transparent Persistence™.

2) Updated Eclipse IDE integration to auto-detect and install on Eclipse version 2.

3) New wizard to easily import entire database schema in one simple process.

4) Updated Class Importer which makes it easier to import complex class models and optionally auto-create the resulting database tables.

5) Updated UML/XMI Object Model Importer makes importing the UML model much more controllable.

Engineers typically start with either an existing object model in a UML Modeling tool, a complex class model, or a complex database structure (i.e. schema). Having the ability to quickly import the classes or tables and automatically track the relationships is an amazing times savings. With CocoBase®, the import and generation of maps and resulting navigation model all occurs in one easy process. From this point, all the developer may need to do is to auto-generate any additional objects or components.

For example, if the developer starts with an existing complex database structure or schema, CocoBase® automatically imports the entire schema, creates all the maps and relationships between the data (i.e. navigation model). With this created, the process is quickly completed by generating the Java code which could be any of and or a mix of the following; CMP & BMP Entity Beans, Session Beans, Dynamic Transparent Persistence™, and stand-alone Java. This greatly streamlines the development cycle making it possible to go from relational data to deployable application in a short amount of time. Thus reducing the development time from hours to minutes, which directly supports meeting challenging ROI requirements.
